a very important budget because this whole budget was pinned on whether or not athens was going to get the next chunk of bailout money to the tune of $40 billion. athens is telling us by this friday it runs out of money. the question is -- will it get the money? we know eurozone finance ministers are meeting today but they want to see the report card that was put together by the troika, the international lenders. whether in athens have been doing a good job. athens have said -- we have passed the budget, we have done what you said. we deserve this money. >> i think it is just a matter of time for that to be accepted. there is a slight disagreement within the troika as to the levels of gdp for the 2020 period. just a technicality. and we would expect the measures, those funds to be allocated to greece over the next few weeks. the issue, however, is not a short-term impact but the more medium to long term concerns. will the people in greece be willing to accept the measures in 2013 or is greased built at risk of leaving the eurozone? companies -- about they have come under attack in

city. we'll start up there at the historic, cultural, and literal high point of any trip to athens -- the acropolis. like other hilltop sites in the ancient greek world, athens' acropolis, or "high city," was both a place of worship and of refuge when under attack. crowned by the mighty parthenon temple, the acropolis rises above modern athens, a lasting testament to greece's glorious golden age in the 5th century b.c. grand processions followed the panathenaic way, which was a ceremonial path connecting the town below and the acropolis. they'd pass through this imposing entryway and up to the religious heart of the city in the parthenon. the parthenon was perhaps the finest temple in the ancient world. valiantly battling the acidic air of our modern world, it still stands, with the help of ongoing restoration work. it was constructed in the 5th century b.c. and dedicated to the virgin goddess athena. seeing it today is awe-inspiring, but imagine how striking it must have looked when it was completed, nearly 2,500 years ago, in all its carved and brilliantly painted splendor. the a

streets of athens, and it will probably make markets a little bit jumpy for sure. > > and over in commodity world, have we seen some tops here in gold and oil, perhaps? > > i think that these moves have come in sync with a global slowing economy. if you look at monday's non-manufacturing ism survey for the month of october, some of the weakness, specifically generated in the export sector of that important number, suggests the global economy is slowing. so gold has moved in sync with crude-oil. i think part of the gold trade, too, is perhaps on a stronger u.s. dollar, and that of course could be a vote on perhaps a romney victory later on tonight. > > good to have you on the show today. that's john brady of rj o'brien. in battleground states such as ohio, hundreds of lawyers have shown up to monitor polls on election day. in our cover story, it's one of many pre- emptive steps being taken to avert a recount that, in ohio's case, could take weeks and delay the election's outcome. while former governor romney and president obama criss- crossed the country in last- minute campaign ef
